Derek Jarman‘s ‘Blue’ (1993)
Blue is Jarman’s final feature film, released four months before his death from AIDS-related complications. The disease had already rendered him partially blind at the time of the film’s release.
The film was his last testament as a film-maker, and consists of a single shot of saturated blue colour filling the screen, as background to a soundtrack where Jarman’s and some of his favourite actors’ narration describes his life and vision.

Allen Ruppersberg, ‘Remainders: Novel, Sculpture, Film’ (1991)
128 bound books with jackets, five cardboard packing cartons, and one signed paper bookmark on wood table.
An installation that mimics a publisher’s remainders display in a bookstore. The artist manipulated the presentation in provocative ways: inserting fictional titles and authors onto book covers; printing the back covers and inside jacket flaps of each book with the entire screenplay of a 1960s educational film that warns of the dangers of hallucinogenic drugs; and inserting into each book a series of full-page, black-and-white stills from the artist’s film archive.
